VOTERS in the mid-Bedfordshire by-election cannot find the box to tick which means Nadine Dorries becomes a Lady, which surely is what this was all about.
Constituents of the novelist, columnist and MP have headed to the polls to give her the seat in the upper chamber she so richly deserves, only to find it not on the ballot.
Local resident Charlotte Phelps said: “Pick a new MP? Yes, but first things first.
“Our priority, as the people of mid-Beds, is the ennoblement of one Nadine Dorries, Boris Johnson’s doughtiest defender, to a permanent and well-remunerated position in the Lords.
“Everyone round here loves her. Her opportunistic Channel 4-bashing and slurred late-night TV interviews did so much for the local area.
“She’s a legend to us – none of us has ever seen her in person – and, like Nadine, I’m not prepared to see political representation for this seat until the King does the right thing.”
She added: “Who will I vote for then? Labour. This lot have f**ked it right up.”
